Mold and mildew, your health and your home
The presence of mold and mildew in your home can affect you and your family’s health and can reduce the value of your home. To ensure your house is mildew-free, it is best to have it inspected by a certified professional.
Mildew is not always apparent and can develop inside the walls or ceilings of your house. Often, you will find it on your windowsills, your cloths, and your carpets, in addition to on the walls of your bathroom, your laundry room, or your kitchen, three places that are at least humid.
Health problems caused by mildew include:
- Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat;
- Nasal drip, sinus congestion, symptoms similar to repeated colds;
- Increase in frequency and severity of asthma attacks.
